    MISSION & OBJECTIVE:

    At Rooftop Films, we don't screen in theaters, we screen in communities. From the graffiti covered roof atop a lower east side high school to the top of a a parking garage in Toronto, from atop an artist complex in Gowanus to the roof of an industrial complex overlooking all of Brooklyn, from a park alongside the Delaware River to the beach in Coney Island, Rooftop Films has always been about place. To us, open air cinema is more than a spectacle; it's an artistic opening. And this creative choice is reflected in our programming. We screen smart, entertaining yet personal new films.

    Rooftop Films' Summer Series provides a forum and an audience for emerging and established filmmakers who make deeply personal cinema, films that offer intimate looks into individual lives, imaginations and distinct communities worldwide. Since 1997, Rooftop Films has become one of the premiere venues, in New York City and beyond, for new, underground and independent short films and underexposed feature films. Our films come from around the globe, and include both world premieres, festival award-winners and Academy Award nominees. The artists we present include first-time filmmakers, long-time outsider artists and seasoned film professionals.

    Rooftop screens films of all lengths, formats and genres, including documentaries, animation, experimental works, political film and video and long and short narrative fiction. But the thread that connects all our films is that rather than focus on grandiose topics or artistic abstractions, Rooftop Films shows movies that explore single moments in time and place; personal films that show us where and how you live, and do so with intelligence and daring and in any genre, at any length and in ways and in settings most people would never imagine.

    • Junior Filmmaker Under 17

    MISSION & OBJECTIVE:

    We are an independent festival dedicated to bringing together established and first-time filmmakers in a forum to celebrate the short film. The element of competition is not paramount and while the prizes are significant, it’s the taking part and screening of entrants' films in a public arena that counts. Our commitment, therefore, is to screen as many of the short films entered into our competitions as possible by streaming them on our own intranet network to venues all over the village of Schull. There are wifi hotspots too, so the films can be viewed on smart devices and laptops, but only in the village of Schull.

    We show the competition films in the village hall, pubs, restaurants, shops and on the sides of buildings. We ask the question "What is a cinema, anyway?" and look for answers in every corner of the village. These are exciting times for the viewing public...we are trying to reflect this in our festival.

    MISSION & OBJECTIVE:

    By "Off-Camera” we do not mean a camera that is turned off.
    It stands for a camera which says “No!”
    We throw out “off” up against the contemporary media market in Poland.
    We do not want to adjust ourselves to its standards.
    We want to forge alternative ones.
    Denmark, a country of five million, gave the world the “Dogma” movement.
    Romania, a country of twenty million, redefined the cinema of the last five years.
    Doesn’t Poland, a country of 40 million, have people ready to speak in their own voice? We say “off” to a situation in which a talented artist, fresh from a successful debut, cannot afford to make another movie, one which would be something more than a mere product.
    Being independent doesn’t have to end with your first project.
    We do not want the words “TV” and “market” to mean “compromise” and “crassness”.

    We want to switch the direction to “on” - we want independent
    filmmakers to take advantage of the market, not the other way around.
    That’s why we organize this festival.
    Here, in Krakow, in the city associated with arts, opposition and intellectual underground. It should be a place of many encounters. It should be a place for exchanging ideas and discussion.

    Time to switch the “Off-Camera” on.

We celebrate the works of the filmmakers, and appreciate the opportunity to showcase their works with audiences eager to be immersed in the power of story.
    Grounded in community capacity building, the festival creates year round opportunities to enhance media literacy, self reflection, and community discussion. By creating the shared experience of films that are by and about Black people, the festival is a creative and collaborative opportunity to build cultural competency across the aisle and across neighborhoods in greater Seattle and beyond.

    MISSION & OBJECTIVE:

    The Langston Hughes African American Film Festival's mission is to engage audiences in the powerful voice of cinema that is by or about Black people. Our films are as diverse as our hues and reveal vulnerability, strength and global interconnectedness. We celebrate the works of the filmmakers, and appreciate the opportunity to showcase their works with audiences eager to be immersed in the power of story.
    Grounded in community capacity building, the festival creates year round opportunities to enhance media literacy, self reflection, and community discussion. By creating the shared experience of films that are by and about Black people, the festival is a creative and collaborative opportunity to build cultural competency across the aisle and across neighborhoods in greater Seattle and beyond.

    In 2004 our founder had a vision that a new film festival could be formed to fill the void created by the growing trend of 'niche' festivals.

    After placing a Director as second in command, the shape and focus of ReelHeART became a reality and to this day constantly evolves to refine its mandate to put the spotlight on only the best in independent filmmaking from around the world.

    Our niche is NO niche. We believe in all Cultures under one Roof. It's the same with our Films, Documentaries and Screenplays. We believe in cultural exchange of ideas and creative expression without borders and labels.

    ReelHeART accepts films and documentaries of all genres, countries and film lengths. There are 14 Categories of Competition. Two of those categories are our Short Screenplay and Feature Screenplay Competition. Top Film Prize is the "Founder's Award" ('Best of the Fest').

    ReelHeART is dedicated to supporting the need for exposure for ALL LEVELS of independent filmmakers around the world. We put emerging and student artists alongside established and master filmmakers in an effort that all filmmakers can be recognized for their art, rather than their credits.

    We also have a goal to satisfy and challenge the interests of filmgoers and film supporters, to encourage, reward and celebrate the "Real HeART" of Independent Film and New Media.

    Whether filmmaker, screenwriter, reviewer, media or industry professional, the welcome and networking opportunities you experience at ReelHeART will be talked about from one year to the next!

    MISSION & OBJECTIVE:

    Founded in 1996, The Palm Beach International Film Festival (PBIFF) was the brainchild of local business and civic leaders who felt a film festival would offer an exciting cultural venue for the community, be a tremendous fundraiser for film and television education, and provide an excellent opportunity to introduce filmmakers to the area's resources.

    Today the Palm Beach International Film Festival is renowned industry-wide as a destination for exhibitors to screen films and meet filmmakers, as we've formed a unique partnership with independent theater owners, film bookers, and distribution outlets from around the country. PBIFF is looking forward to fostering these relationships and helping our independent filmmakers get their projects seen by larger audiences.

    PBIFF celebrates both the history and the future of the film industry with eight days of films from around the globe, including post-screening discussions with filmmakers and cast, special events, parties, networking opportunities, industry panels, and student filmmaking programs. The lineup includes narrative features, documentaries, and short films, many of which are World and U.S. Premieres. In 2003 PBIFF became a "Competitive" Festival, joining the ranks of other great film events such as Sundance, Cannes, Toronto, and Venice. In 2014 PBIFF, in a first-ever collaboration of its kind, joined forces with the world-renowned Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) to present a spotlight on Canadian films. For its 20th Anniversary Festival in 2015, PBIFF has spread its wings with a satellite location in Naples, Florida. Now the Festival spans from Palm Beach County on the shores of the Atlantic to the beautiful Gulf Coast.

    PBIFF has enjoyed a remarkable level of success to date. Unlike many festivals around the country, PBIFF has dedicated itself to making a difference in the lives of young people by helping to fulfill their dreams in the world of film. Proceeds generated each year go to the Palm Beach County Schools to provide new technologies for optimal learning in the form of grants and scholarships.

    Throughout its history filmmakers and industry professionals from around the world have supported PBIFF by donating their services to the festival, including Adrien Brody, Anthony Hopkins, Edward Norton, Richard Jenkins, Malcolm McDowell, Anant Singh, James Whitmore, Tommy Lee Jones, Faye Dunaway, Jacqueline Bisset, Richard Zanuck, Dennis Hopper, Woody Harrelson, Louise Fletcher, Leslie Nielsen, Peter Boyle, John Daly, Lesley Ann Warren, Roger Moore, Ann-Margret, Sylvester Stallone, Esther Williams, Burt Reynolds, Michael Caine, Anouk Aimee, Salma Hayek, Samuel L. Jackson, Robert Evans, Michael Clarke Duncan, Ben Gazzara, Fay Wray, and Robert Morse, to name a few.
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Mission:
    The Palm Beach International Film Festival was organized to develop, coordinate, and promote local, domestic, and international independent films in Palm Beach County and to increase public awareness of, and participation in, cinema as an art form. Now it reaches the Gulf Coast, as well, with a satellite location in Naples. The Festival strives to recognize new and original voices, and channel that excitement into a path for success. For today's filmmakers, to connect them with exhibitors who can bring their films to a larger audience through their movie theaters. For tomorrow's filmmakers, grants and scholarships to area schools, offering students an opportunity to pursue their dream for a career in the film industry.

    Vision:
    The Palm Beach International Film Festival strives to be the greatest means to ENGAGE the community around us through the magic of cinema, while EDUCATING them about world issues -- past, present, and future -- via one of the most ENTERTAINING and powerful mediums available to everyone today: FILM. In so doing, we can help send present and future filmmakers onto a path to greater success.

    MISSION & OBJECTIVE:

    The Hamptons International Film Festival’s Screenwriters' Lab, going into its 15th year, is an intimate gathering that takes place each Spring in East Hampton, New York (April 10- 12, 2015). The Lab develops emerging screenwriting talent by pairing established writers & creative producers with up-and-coming screenwriters (chosen by HIFF in collaboration with key industry contacts). The mentors advise in a one-on-one creative laboratory setting while additional events bring the participants together with board members, sponsors, the local artistic community, and other friends of the festival. With scripts from past writers produced year after year, the Lab continues to be an inspiring and safe place for artists to find and hone their creative vision.

    Recent mentors at the lab include Oren Moverman (The Messenger); Michael Cunningham (The Hours, Evening); James Vanderbilt (Zodiac); Mark Heyman (Black Swan); Rob Siegel (The Wrestler); Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck (Half Nelson, Sugar, It's Kind of a Funny Story); Hawk Ostby (Children of Men); Billy Frolick (Madagascar); J.D. Zeik (Ronin); J. Robin Baitz (People I Know, The Substance of Fire); Whit Stillman (Metropolitan, The Last Days of Disco); Ira Sachs (40 Shades of Blue, This Married Life); Andy Bienen (Boys Don't Cry); Jeff Sharp (Producer, You Can Count on Me, Evening); Lawrence Konner (The Sopranos, Boardwalk Empire); Maria Maggenti (The Incredibly True Adventures of Two Girls in Love); Sabrina Dhawan (Monsoon Wedding, Cosmopolitan); Gregory Widen (Highlander, Backdraft); Mark Christopher (54); Maggie Greenwald (Songcatcher, Ballad of Little Jo); Laurie Collyer (Sherrybaby); Lawrence Lasker (Sneakers, War Games); Chap Taylor (Changing Lanes, National Treasure); and Dylan Kidd (Roger Dodger, P.S.).

    We seek a broad selection of screenplays addressing a wide subject matter. Additionally, in collaboration with The Alfred P. Sloan Foundation's initiative in furthering the public understanding of science, we encourage writers to submit screenplays that explore science, technology, mathematics, invention, and engineering in fresh and innovative ways.
